Let me tell you something
Sit down beside me
You’ve got a story to tell
We’re glad to have you
That talent, is not enough
You’ve got to work, my dear
To be as cheery as Christmas card

…and the hardest part, was,
When her own shadow,
Following the crowd.
There are seasons in a man’s life, when the coolest people in your life, who makes life real cool, will desert you. Those moments; Kings go through. The President of the United States, The Queen of England and Papal Pope, all go through it. There is also a time when your own soul get tired of the journey and wants to leave you, to languish in the dust. Never allow your soul to join the negative crowd that deserts you, in the season of loneliness. Your best response to the disloyal crowd or friend, is to anchor your soul in the deep conviction of the Saviors great love towards you. You die with the negative crowd if you anchor your ship on negativity.
There comes a time in our pilgrim journey, that we will be thankful to God and all those in our lives who one way or the other became a cancer in our life. Of late, i have been real careful on how i respond to ill-treatment and misfortunes.
I consider every negative thing which comes my way to destroy me will not materialize but rather teach my hands with wisdom, because God always make all things to work for my good. There is no panic in this…Gd’s faithfulness can be trusted at the edge of the cliff. Everything that Satan does, will not scare me to death. I only know one thing; God is with me even in my foolishness, to turn the counsels of the wicked to null and void, and teach me wisdom to step up into the next level of the journey. Scripture say it this way;
Romans 8:28 (NIV) 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a]have been called according to his purpose.
If God has really called you out of darkness and has sealed you with the precious Holy Ghost, as a sign of your adoption into the family of God. If you are called and chosen, then you should remember that God is with you as a mighty warrior and a refuge of hope to anchor your soul from the storms of wicked men. The Bible says that we are God’s special possession… “1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light”.
The world is just a mass puzzle landscape. The truth of the matters is that, the believer does not seek solutions and answers from the external world. We have become answers and solutions. Do you know that you have put on a new nature created in the image of God? Within your born again spirit is the treasure of knowledge and wisdom. How did you know that McDaniels? Paul wrote to the Collosians. He had this to say ….
“Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
Everything that God is was inherent in Jesus, as the Christ. In the same token, we have become complete in Christ fullness through rebirth. Is God full of answers and wisdom for every case? So are we in Christ Jesus. Sadly, most Christians seek counsel and direction from psychics, fortune tellers, false prophets, TV anchors and the celebrity formulas. I don’t care how popular an eastern philosopher is. If they don’t know Christ, they cannot access the depths and length of God’s wisdom.
The over the top wisdom in our born again spirit, makes us governors over every evil situation in this life. Is Christ enough for you? In Christ, the scripture declares; “ 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:3″ To the new birth believer, the bible says we have the mind of Christ to practically walk over every situation, with our feet firmly on Godly counsels through the escort of the Spirit and with our eyes on Jesus; the treasure of wisdom and knowledge for all things…
1 Corinthians 2:15-16 (NIV)15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?”[a] But we have the mind of Christ.
If I have the mind of God how does that change my depressurized heart? Lack of wisdom, is the reason for of all kinds of disorder in the lives of many souls. Wisdom empowers you to rise above the storm. The christian life is not a human religious efforts. It is not human ability…it is the overflowing life of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, in the life of the regenerated beings. (The born again ones) Christ wisdom and power flows through our born again heart as we yield and surrender our wills to the authority of the word of truth, which is able to save our souls. James encourages us to pray out of faith in all kinds of situations for supernatural wisdom of God to flow out of the wells of our salvation. Friend are you depending on the wisdom of Christ or you are relying on your might and power? Listen then, to James ….
James 1:2-5 (NIV) 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you
Don’t ask God for divine instruction (wisdom) and still go ahead with your head knowledge and reasoning power, trying to solve a problem. He knows the end from the beginning, and there is nothing which takes God by surprise! He has special answers for every issue. Am not surprise the bible says with Him all things are possible. The beauty of it all is that, we can make all things possible by believing. Ask in faith for wisdom and expect your God to lavish you freely with guidance. He doesn’t need your ability; all God needs is our faith and humility before Him. You can make it through the storms to dry land. Wisdom shall be your stability through it all. Share this truth with friends, comment and let me hear your feedback. God bless you real good!!

I say it again; never try to impress anyone, not even God”. God breathes upon us with complete satisfaction. His desire is to see our hearts being impressed upon by His boundless love.
You have probably see it in your own personal life or from the lives of other believers or Christians, who love to impress others with certain actions, so they can be affirmed. We are creatures who dearly love to see others affirm our uniqueness. Through this form of weakness, we always or sometimes try to convince others through all forms of impressions. We love to create the impression that we are the top dog of the company, by applying all manner of office politics, just to please some people or the boss. Do you sometimes feels the weight of being a people’s pleaser? Do you feel the guilt of being an approval addict? Do you sometimes feels you will be lonely if you say it just as it is, to your one and only good friend? Don’t worry my friend; you are not alone in this battle. There are millions of people in our world today, who are suffering from this epidemic. You can be set free, my friend! What I have personally learn through my personal journeys is that; “trying to impress people takes you out of your natural self; automatically, you become fake and bound with negative ties”.
As a Christian and a leader, it is my holy duty to love people irrespective of their behavior and attitude. In the same margin, I also face the temptation which pounce on me to kick my behind out of my natural zone, so to please certain class of people, in order that I might not lose them or anger them, one way or the other. Friend the totality of life is this; “you cannot please people no matter what you do’. You just have to stay with the truth and let the truth have its own free course. This may sound simple and cool, but it takes a courageous man to say “I cannot please all men, regardless..”.
Do we have to impress God? This is where most believers fail. Let this truth sink into your heart..”God does not want you to impress Him with nothing”. The Christian life is not a life of religious efforts and self-righteousness acts to convince God. It is rather the life of Christ flowing through the believer, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our style and methods of giving, prayer and all manner of Christian rituals performed just to make God feel Good about us, are all clanging cymbals. My friend, allow God to impress your heart with the fullness of His manifold grace and love. As you behold Him, singing over your life with contentment, and eternal approval of your standing with HIM, your life will effortlessly birth forth what pleases Him.
By rebirth, you have become a beloved and dearly accepted child to the king. I end by giving you one of my favorite scriptures in the Bible. I find true satisfaction in my natural self, knowing I don’t have to do too much to impress God, but I do much because He has impressed me with His love, like a father will impress on his child with his love and the child begins to excel and bear much fruit, from the flow of his fathers love. God shouts and breathe over you with love. Which means you matter to Him, just as you are in Him, through grace.
Zephaniah 3:17 (NET Bible) 17 The Lord your God is in your midst; he is a warrior who can deliver. He takes great delight in you; he renews you by his love; he shouts for joy over you.
The kind of life which says, “if I don’t do much for God and meet all the standards of the law, I will not please Him” This kind of believer is ignorant of the fact that before we ever did anything for God, we were a delight through the cross. God takes great delight in you my good friend. If i have to shout this from the roof top or use megaphone to sound this precious truth into your ears, I will do it all day till you say “yes i believe, I am a delight of God”. Remember I did not say, our lives should not please God! Our lives should not please God on the basis of our human efforts to convince Him. I know you probably know this scripture in the book of Romans which says when we were yet sinners… Okay, let the Bible speak for itself so that every doubt settles in your mind. God was not angry with you, being an unbeliever. He did loved you but you couldn’t enjoy His love because the gospel light has not yet shine in your heart. Friend we were blind and ignorant to a love granted to us freely through Christ.
The Bible say; Romans 5:7-8 (TLB) 7 Even if we were good, we really wouldn’t expect anyone to die for us, though, of course, that might be barely possible. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Did you see that. God showed His great love for us by sending Christ Jesus. I don’t think there is anything on this earth or in the world to come that can negate the great love of God towards you. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you less or more. He just love you. That is His nature. God is love and in His perfect love, all fears of life, vamoosed. Let Him impress you with How much He loves you and see you life transformed by His great love. Much love and grace to you. Thanks for reading and sharing the grace gospel to friends and other believers.

Book Title Poetry:
The greatest story ever revealed.
He Came to set the captives free,
No wonder they call him the savior.
Who am I?
Born from innocence,
Of permanent value,
Destined to reign,
In his image.
